[Download] HTC Inspire 4G Gets Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread Update

I’d say that this is a pretty good news for HTC Inspire 4G owners. The AT&T branded HTC Inspire 4G handset has finally got its Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread OS update. The other good news is that rather than an automatic, over-the-air update, the new firmware update is available for manual download right now on HTC’s website. The HTC Inspire 4G users can also receive the OTA update with the help of “System Updates” preference screen. The update will bring the Gingerbread along with the new HTC sense features, improvements and other bug fixes to your Inspire 4G handset.

  1. Unfortunately like many others that upgraded to 2.3.3, my exchange account stopped syncing immediately. 2.3.3 isn’t compatible with corporate policy because, according to the details on the error, it allows remote desktop connections and internet connection sharing.
    Im ready to DOWNgrade.

  2. I received an OTA notification this morning that there was an update available, so I went and did it.
    After the update was done, I checked the version number, and it is 2.3.3. It comes with some of the features you mention, BUT my download size was much smaller – about ~200 MB. Just thought I’d mention it in case anyone else does their update over the air.
    My phone is the AT&T Inspire 4G.

  3. Installed 2.3.3 yesterday. Email syncs fine, but I can no longer send out text messages.

    Don’t care for the new graphics, either. I’d like to go back.

  4. I also got the OTA 2.3 update today, I saw TAU’s post on the camera+video failing, and nope mine works perfectly so I took the time to go thru as many apps as I could, and nothing has stopped working at all. My update was a success.
